Pachyderm: Data Versioning, Data Pipelines, and Data Lineage

Pachyderm is a tool for version-controlled, automated, end-to-end data pipelines for data science. If you need to chain together data scraping, ingestion, cleaning, munging, wrangling, processing, modeling, and analysis in a sane way, while ensuring the traceability and provenance of your data, Pachyderm is for you. If you have an existing set of scripts which do this in an ad-hoc fashion and you're looking for a way to "productionize" them, Pachyderm can make this easy for you.


  • Containerized: Pachyderm is built on Docker and Kubernetes. Whatever languages or libraries your pipeline needs, they can run on Pachyderm which can easily be deployed on any cloud provider or on prem.
  • Version Control: Pachyderm version controls your data as it's processed. You can always ask the system how data has changed, see a diff, and, if something doesn't look right, revert.
  • Provenance (aka data lineage): Pachyderm tracks where data comes from. Pachyderm keeps track of all the code and data that created a result.
  • Parallelization: Pachyderm can efficiently schedule massively parallel workloads.
  • Incremental Processing: Pachyderm understands how your data has changed and is smart enough to only process the new data.

Getting Started

To start deploying your end-to-end version-controlled data pipelines, try us for free on Hub with little to no setup or run Pachyderm locally. You can also deploy on AWS/GCE/Azure in about 5 minutes.

You can also refer to our complete documentation to see tutorials, check out example projects, and learn about advanced features of Pachyderm.
